A Movember to remember in Kamloops

More than $5,500 raised for men's health initiatives

Sun Life Financial’s Movember movement raised more than $5,500 for men’s health initiatives.

Movember is an annual month-long event, held in November, that sees men grow moustaches and more as they raise awareness of men's health issues, including cancer and mental health.

While they grow ‘staches and beards and all sorts of hairstyles, they also seek donations to men’s health causes.

On Thursday night at the Shark Club, after 30 razor-less days, the participants gathered at a fundraiser to celebrate the Movember that was and shave off their four-week-long effort.

Helping out were emcee and “barber” Francesca Lucia from radio station Country 103, whose work was overseen by Lise from the Continental Barber Shop in downtown Kamloops.
